EU to hit US with $4 bn trade sanctions

May 07, 2003 19:28 IST

The European Union on Wednesday got the go-ahead to hit the United States with a record $4.04 billion in trade sanctions in a long-running row over tax breaks for major exporting firms, trade officials said.

The decision by the World Trade Organisation, approving a detailed list of goods, cleared the last hurdle to the EU's levying of punitive duties to which the Geneva-based trade referee agreed last August.

The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, on Wednesday gave the United States an autumn deadline to change the law or face the sanctions. [END]

Is it me or is the UE starting to flex its muscle a little.

No it´s not, that will divide people between people, is not good, americans will say why we should pay that money to europe?
America has a 6 trillion debt (federal reserve) the citizen won´t accept that, and also they will say that´s how europe pays back all the help from the americans?

Well in this story all is propaganda, we the people, doesn´t matter from where, are paying the taxes, the wars, the developing of WMD, ICBM, Militar etc etc etc...

We pay this star wars story daily...
This thing will bring a worst situation really, i just don´t want the NWO to # up the relations between the people of the world, just becuase of their sick game...

I hope rational people understands who takes those kind of decisions, and blames the correct person, instead of blaming countries, or blame europe....
